During a ceremony at the Elysee Palace on October 2022, Emmanuel Macron, the president of France, announced that France would be planting a total of 1 billion trees by 2030. As well as hopefully helping to the carbon footprint of the country, the forests should also help France to recover 10% of the forests that it has lost. This includes areas of forests that have been effected by wildfires.
Paris, the capital city of France, is also aiming to plant 170,000 new trees by 2026 in order to combat climate change and keep the city cool. The mayor of the city also wants to make the city 'completely cyclable' within the same year, creating an eco-friendly transport alternative for both residents and tourists that will be both easy and safe to use.
